Chapter IV.—Continuation.

The Evangelists, too, when they declared that the one Father was “the only true God,” 1229 did not omit what concerned our Lord, but wrote: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made.” 1230 And concerning the incarnation: “The Word,” says [the Scripture], “became flesh, and dwelt among us.” 1231 And again: “The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.” 1232 And those very apostles, who said “that there is one God,” 1233 said also that “there p. 111 is one Mediator between God and men.” 1234 Nor were they ashamed of the incarnation and the passion. For what says [one]? “The man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself” 1235 for the life and salvation of the world.
